Contract Research, Consultancies and Other Agreements
UNSW provides comprehensive support with contract research, consultancies and other agreements from pre to post award.
The RSPO assists UNSW researchers with preparation, review, negotiation and sign-off on agreements relating to contract research and consultancy.
This includes advice in relation to building successful client relationships and establishing pathways that increase collaborative opportunities with external organisations.
The team also provides advice and support with:

For assistance with these processes, including having a research agreement reviewed or drafted, please forward a request to firstname.lastname@example.org with as much relevant background information as possible.
